How do we get rid of this Premier and this Party before they sell off all of Sydney to developers… Just a moment! I think this has already happened with everything that isn’t tied down, bolted down, knocked down going…going…gone. But I would still like to see this Premier also gone…gone…before she becomes a millionaire at our expense.
Fixing a rort – Labor’s family trust policy is innovative” SMH 2 Aug – How do we go about getting rid of Rorts or making them acceptable, Royce Millar? Perhaps if we loudly shouted “remember Eddie Obeid and his trust supporting several sons” – perhaps then someone would listen and remove this big end of town tax rort. But does anyone have the intestinal fortitude to tackle this problem? I doubt it.
So El Supremo Dutton backs a call for a “postal vote” to decide the same sex marriage issue. Of course, with his understanding of the electorate he would know that many people would be unable to “postal vote”, like the elderly/sick (and they may make up a large percentage of “no” votes) and any who have to take the often long walk until they find a letter box or even in this day and age – no car.
And similarly he would know that so many who could not easily access the post would just give up….and so their votes would not count (what percentage ).
What price a plebiscite…and what value?
News of the proposed super Ministry could perhaps get a qualified approval from me (not that this matters – I am just a voter) but to put Peter Dutton in charge…no…no…no. Right or wrong he comes over to me as an authoritarian, humourless, my way or no way person and I cannot go along with him (Colonel Klink or perhaps El Supremo – I hesitate to say “heil…”?) being given such amazing powers in this country. It’s too much Malcolm.
Over 700 breakdowns of buses according to Berejiklian and Constance – but my question is WHY/ Why are the faults in the buses not attended to? Is it because – as a bus driver said to me – that Gladys was getting ready to sell off the bus lines (note “lines” not just the current lines under discussion). Will private bus lines be better maintained and if not will those bus lines be subject to condemnation or even returned to the government? No way!!! Is it intended to privatise ALL buses? Will we be told – no!!!!
Poor WikiLeaks whistleblower Chelsea Manning – released from gaol after seven years (SMH 18 May) for doing much the same thing – disclosure of intelligence matter – as the President of the USA. But Donald will tough it out and build up his ego without doing time in any form.
Is this how Donald Trump conducted his business interests prior to becoming President of the USA? Lies, obfuscation, mind-boggling mind-switches, vindictive staff relations, constant staff turnover…how on earth did he become a billionaire. Oh yes! He confused and bewildered his business opponents but for how long will this system work in diplomatic/political circles.
Will someone remind me – what were Nixon and Clinton taken to task for – impeached for?
